Marie Toseland in conversation with Jonathan P Watts: 11 December 2013
During her residency Marie explored various key ideas based around practice, including the use of language, performance and representation.
These core areas of interest were considered through arranged studio visits and a conversation event with writer and critic Jonathan P Watts, during which they discussed a mutual interest in rap battles in relation to the performance of the self and photography in social media.
Marie received studio visits from Cally Spooner (artist), Ellen Mara De Wachter (independent curator and writer), Clare Grafik (Director, Photographers' Gallery), Brian Griffiths (artist) and George Vasey (independent curator and writer).
Other visitors included Donna Lynas (Director, Wysing Arts Centre), Nicole Yip (Assistant Curator, firstsite), Patrick Coyle (artist), Simon Morrisey (Director, WORKS|PROJECTS).
